Got out for a fairly fast 25 or so before the Thanksgiving food and beer. Time to work off all of that exercise...

Almost 1000 ft of climbing in Illinois makes for a special ride. Grass, gravel and pavement and the 60f & sunny weather provided plenty to be thankful for;

We took the tandem out for 30.85 miles this morning. Had to be back home early for T-day preparations.

I went out for 33 miles with some folks from the local bike shop this morning. It never got much over 30 degrees, but we had a great ride anyhow. Everyone was ogling over my leather work gloves today.

Got out this morning for around 35 miles in decent weather trying to minimize the damage done in the afternoon. Ride was great, turkey was great, nice day. Happy Thanksgiving all!



First ride on the Miyata 615 after changing up the gearing. I went with a 7 speed freewheel from IRD with a 32 cog low, paired with a nice set of Shimano 105 down tube shifters generously given to my by [MENTION=43632]top506[/MENTION]. Thanks again.

My sister & brother-in-law went riding with me out to Powhatan State Park, along the James River, west of Richmond, VA. However, my BIL didn't check his front tire too good when they left their house, and then realized he had a flat (or a slow leak). Oops... He had a fishing pole and tackle box in the truck, so he went fishing along the river, while my sister & I went on the bike ride. My wife didn't go as she said she had too much to do around the house (or deep down, she's just not that into bicycle riding ).

Anyway, my sister has a Trek "townie bike" as she calls it (Trek 700 hybrid, ladies 7-speed) and rides slow compared to me on my C&V "old school" '85 Fuji road bike. I was just tooling along and would have to slow way down into 2nd gear on the freewheel (26T rear, 42T front), and ride at like 5 mph, waiting for her to catch up. I love my sister dearly, but, as they say on ESPN during that NFL football highlights/commentary, "Come on, man..."

V-e-r-y s-l-o-w 10.22 mile bicycle ride in 1 hr and 3 min. But, hey, at least we were out riding.


Here's a picture of me at the entrance of the State Park. I wore a bright neon yellow reflective vest, as we had to (briefly) ride along US 522 (major highway with no shoulder!)




Here's my "old school" C&V '85 Fuji Del Rey leaning on a fence (bike seat = contact) in the parking lot.




Here's a cool shot looking down at the canoe/kayak launch onto the river. Knowing how crazy I can be, if I had a kayak, I'd ride it like a toboggan down the ramp into the water! LOL... But normally, people just walk down the steps, sliding the canoe or kayak along the ramp and get in it once at the water.




Lastly, here's a nice view of the James River, looking downstream (heading towards Richmond, etc...)

Butch, that sounds like a pleasant ride despite the speed. Nice pics. Richmond is where I was born and raised, where much of my family still lives. One of my brothers lives in Ashland. This is the first time in 7 or 8 years we haven't gone down to visit on Thanksgiving.

Today it rained hard here and we had a social commitment, a birthday party for a friend turning 85. So no riding. But after yesterday's tandem ride I looked at the BBs and the chains. It has been squeaking, very irritating. I was afraid it was BB bearings. Nope, it seems to be the drive chain. But in the meantime I looked carefully at the timing chain. This is the Sugino ring on the stoker's crank.



This ring gets pulled forward on top by the captain's crank. I should point out that the torque from the stoker (my sweetie) doesn't go into this chain. All her torque goes into the drive chain, but then, she's only 115 lbs pushing a 140mm crank, which is to say not so much torque after all. This wear is all due to me. It's mine and mine alone, I tell you! But then, after 7000 miles maybe it isn't so surprising.

That's really neat that you were born and raised here. I moved here when I retired from the Coast Guard years ago. I'm originally from Poughkeepsie, New York. Still have relatives all over upstate NY.

I did back-to-back tour of duty in Boston, MA when I was in the USCG. My wife and I raised our twin daughters in the off-base military housing complexes in Dedham, MA back in the late 80's. Traffic was always brutal. USCG housing was 12 miles (as the crow flies) from the base on Commercial St. in downtown Boston (just down from Boston Garden), but it would take you an hour driving to work!

I got out yesterday by myself and rode up to the Snoqualmie Pass Tunnel.
I was in the shade nearly the whole way - a chilly 45 miles or so round trip.
